Guilt Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie

I baked a guilt free chocolate chip cookie pie last night...and ate half of it.
I am NOT kidding.
I feel kind of guilty.
But not really...because this pie has no eggs, no flour and no butter!!
The secret ingredient...chickpeas (Garbanzo beans).
And it tastes delish!

I served it to my PICKY teenager and she ate the entire slice and never noticed a thing!

I topped it with fat-free whipped cream, but next time I'm going with vanilla frozen yogurt.
So good!!

Guilt Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie
Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie

1 can Chickpeas (Garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
1/2 cup quick oats
2 T unsweetened applesauce
1 1/2 T canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend the chickpeas in a food processor.  Add the rest of the ingredients into the food processor, except for the chocolate chips and blend until all ingredients are combined.  Mix in the chocolate chips with a spoon. Pour into a greased Pyrex glass pie plate.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until set.  Cool for at least 10 minutes.  Serve with fat free whipped cream or vanilla yogurt.

Try not to eat the entire plate of pie :)

  1. This is interesting, I eat chickpeas in falafel's, hummus, salads, soups but never thought they were used in desserts!! I might have to give this a try!!

  2. Interesting recipe! I've never used chickpeas in a dessert before, but this looks delicious.

  3. I made this several times over the summer and it was a hit each and every time. I hope your tummy was ok after injesting so many garbonzo beans!

  4. That is the most interesting thing I have seen...who knew chick peas would make a great dessert? You have me interested for sure in this!!!

  5. Me, my husband and our 1 and 3yr old LOVED this recipe! Thanks for sharing. It is very similar to a real cookie. I probably shouldn't have had 4 of the little squares though because I have so much abdominal pain that I had to skip my work-out tonight...lol.

  6. This recipe is SO delicious! I've made it several times, and I love, LOVE Chocolate Covered Katie. Who knew that chickpeas could be so tempting? Like, "slap me if I try to keep eating them" good?!
